Abstract:In 2013, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library assessed its preservation and access infrastructure for locally digitized historical newspaper collections. At the time, the library was locally serving 900,000 pages of web-accessible historical newspapers using an internally managed system, and 200,000 pages via the Library of Congress’(LC) Chronicling America project. When the library reviewed its repository architecture for locally digitized newspapers, they also conducted a user survey, performed an environmental scan of digital newspaper management systems at peer institutions, and established user requirements. Following this analysis, the library implemented the Veridian digital newspaper platform in 2014 and transferred its digitized newspaper collections into it, and all of its digitized newspapers are now available from a single access point. This paper provides a detailed overview of the library’s assessment process, and a summary of the current status its digital newspaper repository services.
